very good - I used a whole chicken and increased the time by 30 minutes and it was incredible.

red potatoes in this sounds awesome. i would think no on the crock pot. it simmers foods on low. these items are fried and then steamed. crock pot does neither of these things. to get the delicious texture, thus flavor of all ingredients i would follow the recipe as stated. foil packs... the chicken obviously takes longer to cook thru than the vegys. i would grill the chicken and foil the vegys. Mmmmmm cant wait till company or a potluck :P

Been making this several years, but had forgotten about it for the past 2, so I looked it up on the net today and was so happy to find it (cuz I didn't think I'd have the title right). Just as good as I remember. Very healthy meal-in-one. I cut back on the butter quite a lot and it still tastes great. So easy to make, so tasty and family loves it.

I would like to know if there is a crockpot version also.

In the list of ingredients it calls for 1/2 cup butter divided. It doesn't say anywhere in the recipe how much of the butter to use for cooking the chicken and how much of the butter to use sauteing the remaining garlic and tarragon. Would love it if someone could clarify.

Fresh corn is so yummy! For a quick meal or even a healthy snack, try cutting cooked corn off the cobb and serving with only a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Delicious and no need for salt or butter if you are counting.

I wonder if this meal could be cooked in an aluminum foil Packet?

You might even try chicken stock instead of water and also add broccili floretts too.
